Hard words to say but there it is in black and white.
I set about accomplishing several goals this year.
1. Read 10 books – On #5 and #6 right now
2. Spending more time with friends, less on Facebook. Check
3. Lose 50 pounds. I have lost 40.
4. Give 10 effective speeches. I have given 6.
4. Get more sleep aka stop snoozing
I have made zero progress on this goal until today. I have been trying to decipher why I needed to get more sleep “just five more minutes” because the goals above are not easy and with modesty, I am getting them done, no problem, even shouted a healthy, Jed Bartlettesque “What’s next?” to those goals but the sleep thing was really stumping me. I turned to the internet for answers including twitter and facebook and finally realized.
It is like everything else on my list, it requires intention and discipline so I am proud to say I woke up today and did not snooze and as a result had time to do dishes, make breakfast and write a blog post. Definitely a successful morning already which sets me up to have a great day.
So I hereby declare to my husband and certain others who have been chorusing for years, you were right and I was wrong. I choose not to snooze. Today. and Tomorrow. So it might take a bit to form a habit but that is okay too, I plan to give myself some grace and work on it each day. That’s how I am working on everything else.
What are you working on? What are your stumbling blocks? Can I help?
